November 24! The Rumour Is True!

Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week

October 14th, 2007 at 06:48pm

This week’s award goes to Steely Dan. Steely Dan were an interestingly unconventional group, and the lyrics of the feature song this week, Do It Again, could probably be described as “odd”.

In the mornin’ you go gunnin’
For the man who stole your water
And you fire till he is done in
But they catch you at the border
And the mourners are all singin’
As they drag you by your feet
But the hangman isn’t hangin’
And they put you on the street

Yeah you go back Jack do it again
Wheel turnin’ ’round and ’round
You go back Jack do it again

When you know she’s no high climber
Then you find your only friend
In a room with your two timer
And you’re sure you’re near the end
Then you love a little wild one
And she brings you only sorrow
All the time you know she’s smilin’
You’ll be on your knees tomorrow

Yeah you go back Jack do it again
Wheel turnin’ ’round and ’round
You go back Jack do it again

Now you swear and kick and beg us
That you’re not a gamblin’ man
Then you find you’re back in Vegas
With a handle in your hand
Your black cards can make you money
So you hide them when you’re able
In the land of milk and honey
You must put them on the table

Yeah you go back Jack do it again
Wheel turnin’ ’round and ’round
You go back Jack do it again

Samuel

    Samuel, why hast thou forsaken thy on-line readers ?
    Art thou still standing for Parliament ?

    3 days off the campaign trail….. I do not think he was ever serious about running for the House of Reps… next thing we will be seeing reruns (repeats) of his Dingle in Dongle-bat cartoon series *sigh*
